Tuition Crisis: AAUA Shut down Indefinitely Amidst Looming NANS Protest

By: Ade Adeleke

Following the crisis caused by the policy of “No payment of tuition, No Test/Exam, which led to the closure of the institution for four weeks, the authorities of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, (AAUA) has not shut down the school indefinitely.

A Circular signed by the Acting Registrar of the University, Mr Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa says the Vice Chancellor of the school, Professor Igbekele Amos Ajibefun has on behalf of the Senate of the University, directed that resumption be postponed.

“A new date of resumption will be announced later. Once again, on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, I wish all students a happy mid-semester break”.

Observer said the indefinite closure of the institution may not be unconnected with the decision of the Students’ bodies under the National Association of Nigerian Students to stage protest against what they described as an obnoxious tuition introduced by Ajibefun and his governing Council led by Oro&-Chancellor, Dr Tunji Abayomi.

The Registrar said the latest circular supersedes the earlier one circulated.

Here is the full text of the Cicular
